WILL AND JESSIE GET CLOSER

Will tells Jessie: ‘All my eggs are in your basket’ as they chat by the firepit.

Later in bed to Lana, Will says: ‘I think I love her.’

Donning revealing spacesuits to spin around the pole, the girls certainly got the boys’ hearts racing in the eye-popping task.

And Will was absolutely buzzing to have kissed the Aussie stunner and gushed to the boys after the game. 

Later, the pair snuggle by the firepit and Will tells Jessie he likes her and that he ‘gravitates’ towards her.

The pair then share another kiss, to cheers from the other Islanders.

ANNA-MAY GETS UPSET

Kai and Anna-May decide to end things after he says he feels more interested in getting to know Tanyel.

Kai says: ‘If I’m going to be completely honest with myself as hard as it is, I think I do get on better with Tanyel a little bit more and there’s a bit more of a spark there.’

Anna-May added: ‘I feel like we don’t have much flirt, it’s a lot of serious chat.’

The conversation continues as Kai says: ‘I think sometimes you’ve just got to go with your gut with these things.’

Anna-May adds: ‘Don’t worry I feel the same way and I feel like me and you, we get along more as friends, I do have a laugh with you and we can have fun but it’s more in a friend way.’

In the Beach Hut, Anna-May says: ‘I kind of saw it coming and it’s made me realise Kai is not the one I’m looking for’. 

She then breaks down in tears with Will and says she feels like a lost puppy, as the only one without a connection.

ZARA HAS HER EYES ON SHAQ

Zara approaches Shaq on the daybeds where she admits that ‘it would be nice to explore’ something new with him. 

She says: ‘I’ll be real with you, Tom is obviously ticking pretty much every box for me but it’s early still, I haven’t even spoken to you properly, it would be nice to explore.’

However, their cosy chat is awkwardly interrupted by Tanya Manhenga – who is coupled up with Shaq – as she brings the airport security officer a cup of tea.

And despite seemingly in a happy couple with Tanya, Shaq tells Zara that he feels the same way and would like to get to know her.

He tells her: ‘If you are actually interested in someone you owe it yourself to get to know them, you don’t know what it could be on the outside. 

‘On the outside you would be someone that I would go for so I do want to explore that to see the vibes’, to which she says: ‘Same with you.’

Shaq and Zara then bond as they talk about them both being from London as he remarks: ‘You’re from London too, you just get it.’

After Tanya asks: ‘Do you speak about me with Zara? Do you feel like when you speak to her about like, there’s anything there?

To which he admits: ‘When we do speak, I feel like there is a vibe there and we do get along, I’m gonna speak to her a bit more.’ 

Tanya admits she’s jealous, saying later: ‘It just makes me so hot and bothered.’
